Department for Regional Development (Northern Ireland): Stop a plan to allow all taxis into bus lanes


Northern Ireland's Regional Development Minister Danny Kennedy is preparing to announce that all taxis in Northern Ireland will be allowed to use bus lanes.

A DRD consultation received an 86% negative response, with the main concerns from cyclists about safety and perception of safety being ignored. This plan harms cycling in Northern Ireland and especially Belfast, as well as slowing all bus transit - for the sake of less than 3% of rush hour taxi commuters.

There is a protest planned for Belfast City Hall on Thursday 21st February at 1pm, find out more on the Bikefast Facebook page.
